As the Democratic and Republican Party presidential candidates dodge the illegal immigration crisis during the campaign, independent thinking Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, and former presidential candidate, is not afraid to tackle the problem face on.

KUDOS for Ron Paul

Anyone with an IQ higher than single digits should accept the simple fact that ALL incentives, NOT just welfare, entice and encourage Illegal Immigration and cost the Taxpayers of The United States BILLIONS each and every year.

Bummer, it does seem like common sense doesn't it?

Once again calling to mind the writer (his name ecapes me, but I KNOW we'd all recognize him), who, in the past decade or two, came up with the simple statement, "You can't have open borders, and a welfare state"..or words to that effect. Common sense? I don't know..it's CERTAINLY "sense"...but apparently not quite as common as we'd like...

Very true. We have the welfare handouts they can't get at home. Open borders and easy welfare -- of course we have a problem.

Technically he suspended his campaign. But i've heard he'll be on a VA ballot by some glitch.

Most people MAY disagree but his campiagn for liberty is picking up steam. America doesnt deserve a good president like him if they are willing to vote for Obama or McCain.
